The market potential for VoIP is huge, with substantial near term growth anticipated in both cable telephony and Fiber-to-the Premises deployments, where the G6 platform is unparalleled in its capabilities. The G6 platform is also used extensively in more traditional copper-based broadband networks such as DSL and T1. Working with either traditional call control platforms such as the Class 5 switch, or with next generation call controllers such as softswitches and SIP feature servers, the G6 platform provides a highly scalable and reliable carrier class solution from which service providers can launch profitable new services and reduce costs by migrating their networks to Voice over IP.
